Now might add PS4 PlayStation, PS2 and PS1 Games

Streaming gaming service PlayStation Sony PlayStation 4 could get now, PlayStation 2, and PlayStation 1 games plus PlayStation 3 games currently offered, the company said.

"In our plans for the future we're looking at all there is a real possibility that you will see PlayStation 1, PlayStation 2, and PlayStation 4 titles available," Sony Entertainment Network VP Eric Lempel told Game Informer in an interview. "Right now it's only PlayStation 3, but these are all options for the future."

Furthermore, Lempel said that Sony is currently looking to make changes to the pricing model based on comments now PlayStation users. As noted above, with rental prices ranging as high as $ 49.99, and there is no way to access digital games previously purchased PSN, prices are currently too high. Lempel not specify future prices, but recently introduced Now PlayStation game rentals for as low as $ 1.99.

As for the Netflix subscription option type we said we wanted in our article about how PlayStation now has to change, Lempel said that Sony is studying the possibility of establishing a price for a given set of content. "No details on that yet, but we are actively working on that behind the scenes, we've heard from our users that this is something they are really interested," Lempel said. He added that Sony has not ruled out allowing users to simply buy a complete set of PlayStation now.

Finally, Lempel said PlayStation far now going "extremely well" to "very positive" feedback from users, 80 percent of those who said they are having a good gaming experience on the service.

PlayStation has now been in open beta since late July.

Working for Microsoft Xbox games flow right to your browser

Microsoft is developing technology that transmits Xbox games on PC browsers.

if a new report by veteran journalist Brad Sams Microsoft Neowin is correct. One Both Xbox and Xbox 360 games are supposed to work with the service, which can be accessed through Internet Explorer or Chrome.

Last year, Microsoft has it used the effervescent power of the cloud to show Halo 4 is running on a Windows Phone, among other devices. This browser-based solution is apparently the continuation of this research, as well as use for a huge infrastructure of Microsoft Azure cloud.

According to Sams, "Xbox 360 offered the full experience, including the dashboard runs in the browser too ... The product, as it is right now, has the Xbox brand and works outside the walls of Microsoft . "

Another source said Sams experience will provide 60 frames per second, which is more than I can say for most Xbox 360 and Xbox One games.

The fact that Microsoft is entering the streaming space is not a big surprise. OnLive has broadcast games on multiple platforms for years, Steam now allows home streaming PC games, Nvidia Shield streams PC games, and Sony is making its big push with PlayStation now. Just last month Microsoft Research published details of DeLorean, its initiative to reduce the backlog of web-based games.

This is where I'm confused though: PlayStation Now is the direct equivalent of this Microsoft service, and runs exclusively on PlayStation devices. Why will Microsoft Xbox and Xbox 360 games one and make them available on all computers? I have no idea, and this is the piece of rumor that gives me pause. The Xbox one is not selling incredibly well, but neither is selling so poorly that streaming system based on PC makes a lot of sense.

Unless, that is, the technology allows you to transmit only the dashboard and games directly from your own Xbox, similar to the form of vapor streaming at home working with computers. In that case, Xbox streaming to Windows devices could help shore up struggling sales of Windows tablets and give the Xbox an advantage on the PlayStation 4, the Remote Play functions are limited to a handful of mobile devices from Sony.

Of course, this project (if any) is safe within the laboratory-which means Microsoft Research is a possibility that we never see, or come, but in a totally different way. In any case, we keep you informed if we find more.
